I have no idea about shops, but Warner Robins has the second largest USAF museum in their system. Not quite the variety of Wright Patterson, but looks like it is worth a look in any case.

Great to know, Gil, thanks for the heads-up! Work had me slated for a class at Wright-Patt this past January, but schedules changed. I wasn't too upset about missing Dayton, but I would have loved to visit the Museum of the Air Force.

Ken,

You could contact the National Infantry Museum located in Columbus, GA to see if there's a dealer there.

Not sure what you're looking for but a dealer with a limited selection of militaria but a good selection of WW2 guns is brocksguns.com.

They're located maybe an hour south of you in Bostwick, GA.

Thanks for the info, Steve. Went to the Infantry Museum yesterday. They are very politically correct 0n any such recommendations. Guess they've previously been pressured from merchants and wouldn't get near the subject.

 

FYI for anyone interested, Ranger Joes, many years ago carried mostly surplus material, but everything they carry now is new commercial manufactured. However, they do have a huge inventory that is also available on line.

There WAS an old place outside Ft Benning up until a few years ago.....a friend bought out the last kicker box of 1928 field packs as he was going out of business.

 

I can tell you from having lived in the Savannah area for 3 years that there wasn't anything special there. There are a few pretty good antique malls on the TN / GA line near Chattanooga with militaria vendors....but nothing really heavy.

I must have missed this sign. I pull off for gas there once a month. Stop and eat at the Country Restaraunt, and check out the 2 antique shops there. Are you on the West side of the 75?

I'm there since June, next to the antique Mall, if you stop by the Farm house restaurant you'll see me!

Thx

When I went through 11B OSUT in 2008 there were two shops in Columbus. One was in an old gas station, the other was called the Columbus Armory, or something along those terms. Went back through Benning in late Spring 2009, the gas station place had folded shop. Columbus Armory was still there, has it closed as well now? I may still have the guys business card in one of my files.

Columbus Armory is still very much in business. Great place. I highly recommend visiting if anyone is in the area.
